Green Kingfisher diving composite image

We had anchored our baot to watch a jaguar on a beach when i noticed a Green Kingfisher diving for fish not far away from our boat. Since he was repeating the behavior I set my focus for a spot in the water and waiting 15 minutes for hime to dive again. As the Kingfisher hit the water I was able to capture 11 frames of him emerging from the water.
